Children's Literature - Rachel Miller
Each year, many people are attacked by sharks and live to tell about it. In this book, Tom Jackson shares stories about two people who were able to escape being eaten by sharks. He also discusses the largest shark attack known in history. Not all sharks will attack people. The Bull Shark, Tiger Shark, and Great White Shark are three out of the twenty-five species of sharks that do. Sharks can smell a small drop of blood from over a mile away. When sharks attack, they first take a bite to see if they would like to pursue the prey any longer. If not, they spit it out and continue searching for food elsewhere. Many sharks attack from below their prey; some even jump out of the water after they have captured it. Sharks have been known to eat anything in the water. Recent technological advances have led to the development of devices that you can wear to keep sharks away. The author gives insightful tips about how to prevent shark attacks as well as some important data about protecting sharks. A list of websites that the reader can go to for more information about sharks and shark attacks is provided. The vocabulary in the book is appropriate for the age group, and the photographs complement the author's words on each page. Each photograph captures the reader's attention and makes the reader want to learn more. This is part of the "Crabtree Contact" series. Reviewer: Rachel Miller
